Siri: what the hell is her problem?

I send long text messages. I just do. Siri never used to give me shit about it, just transcribe it and send it. Now though, she's quotes The Elements of Style or Thomas Jefferson or some shit about how sentences shouldn't be too long, or to ask her in fewer words. I really can't be looking down at the text or anything while I drive, so I have to just dump it altogether sometimes. When did this crap start? I was thinking the last iOS, but even the. It didn't seem to happen. Am I missing something? What gives?

Those are called emails. You're doing it wrong.

Yes, you shouldn't be texting while you're driving.

I sometimes have lots of information to convey.


Good to know. I almost never talk on the phone when I'm driving, and the hands-free texting is a rarity, but she does it when I'm using her at other times as well.

Download Google Now and associate voice commands to that?

Re: Siri: what the hell is her problem?

I just Googled it and can only find one discussion in the Apple forums, started three hours ago. I've had about as much of this as I want to tolerate, but I have a nagging feeling that if I take it to the Apple store, I'll just wait in line for hours and they'll tell me to sent shorter messages. This is such bulllshit, it's happening out of nowhere, what the hell is going on?!
